Write a 450-word short paper summarizing a specific viewpoint source (a source in which the author makes an argument and takes a position on an issue or controversy).
Format: Refer to Purdue OWL (Links to an external site.) for MLA formatting style and citation guidelines.
Specifics: Your paper should do the following:
Introduce the controversy. (~100 words)
• Identify your controversy and explain how the source is relevant to that controversy.
• Explain your research process.
o How did you find this source? (e.g., what search engines, databases, and keywords did you use?)
o What are your research strategies moving forward? (e.g., will you use different search engines and/or databases? What new keywords and phrases will you use?)
Summarize the author’s position. (~250 words)
• Don’t try to cover all the author’s points. Instead, condense the information in the article by answering: What is the author’s primary argument and what reasons do they present in support of that argument?
• Use your own language when the author’s expression is not critical, and quote the author’s exact wording when it is memorable or conveys the tone of the argument.
• Use attributions and signal phrases (such as “Smith says” or “according to Bell”) when quoting or paraphrasing the source.
• Do not offer your own opinions about the argument–just represent it neutrally.
Evaluate credibility and bias in the text. (~100 words)
• How have you evaluated this source’s credibility?
• How is the author biased, and how do those biases influence the argument?
• What kinds of evidence does the author use to support their claims and reasons, and is that evidence accurate? For instance, does the author provide or link to credible sources for the factual information included in their text? For instance, does the author provide or link to credible sources for the factual information included in their text?
